caper bloom festival
In the small town of Pollara, the “Festival of flowering capers” takes place in the first week of June in the small Piazza Sant'Onofrio. Everything about the caper is celebrated: its perfumes, its colours, its delicate flowers, and especially its widespread use in various Sicilian gastronomical traditions. Even the kernels of this plant with an intense aroma are used. Capers and caperberries can be stored in oil, pickle, salt or vinegar. The collection of these precious fruits began in May and will go on until the end of August.
